1 Conceptual Physics Fundamentals Chapter 13: LIGHT WAVES

2 This lecture will help you understand: Electromagnetic Spectrum Transparent and Opaque Materials Color Why the Sky is Blue, Sunsets are Red, and Clouds are White Diffraction Interference of Light

3 Light Waves The light of stars that were extinguished ages ago still reaches us. So it is with great men who died centuries ago, but still reach us with the radiations of their personalities. Kahlil Gibran

4 Light Waves Light is the only thing we can see originates from the accelerated motion of electrons electromagnetic phenomenon

5 Electromagnetic Spectrum Electromagnetic wave made up of vibrating electric and magnetic fields

6 Electromagnetic Spectrum CHECK YOUR NEIGHBOR If an electron vibrates up and down 1000 times each second, it generates an electromagnetic wave with a A. period of 1000 seconds. B. speed of 1000 m/s. C. wavelength of 1000 m. D. none of the above

7 Electromagnetic Spectrum CHECK YOUR ANSWER If an electron vibrates up and down 1000 times each second, it generates an electromagnetic wave with a A. period of 1000 seconds. B. speed of 1000 m/s. C. wavelength of 1000 m. D. none of the above Explanation: The vibrating electron would emit a wave with a frequency of 1000 Hz, which is not in the list above.

8 Electromagnetic Spectrum Electromagnetic spectrum classification of electromagnetic waves according to frequency lowest frequency of light we can see appears red highest frequency of light we can see appears violet higher frequency of light is ultraviolet more energetic and causes sunburns beyond are X-ray and gamma ray no sharp boundary between regions

9 Electromagnetic Spectrum CHECK YOUR NEIGHBOR The electromagnetic spectrum spans waves ranging from lowest to highest frequencies. The smallest portion of the electromagnetic spectrum is that of A. radio waves. B. microwaves. C. visible light. D. gamma rays.

10 Electromagnetic Spectrum CHECK YOUR ANSWER The electromagnetic spectrum spans waves ranging from lowest to highest frequencies. The smallest portion of the electromagnetic spectrum is that of A. radio waves. B. microwaves. C. visible light. D. gamma rays.

11 Electromagnetic Spectrum CHECK YOUR NEIGHBOR Which of these is fundamentally different from the others? A. sound waves B. light waves C. radio waves D. X-rays

12 Electromagnetic Spectrum CHECK YOUR ANSWER Which of these is fundamentally different from the others? A. sound waves B. light waves C. radio waves D. X-rays Explanation: All are electromagnetic waves except sound, which is a mechanical wave.

13 Transparent and Opaque Materials Light is transmitted similar to sound light incident on matter forces some electrons in matter to vibrate

14 Transparent and Opaque Materials How light penetrates transparent material such as glass

15 Transparent and Opaque Materials How light penetrates transparent material such as glass (continued) electrons or molecules in the glass are forced into vibration energy is momentarily absorbed and vibrates the electrons in the glass this vibrating electron either emits a photon or transfers the energy as heat Time delay between absorption and reemission of energy of vibrating electrons results in a lower average speed of light through a transparent material

16 Transparent and Opaque Materials Average speed of light through different materials vacuum c (300,000,000 m/s) atmosphere slightly less than c (but rounded off to c) water 0.75 c glass 0.67 c, depending on material diamond 0.41 c

17 Transparent and Opaque Materials CHECK YOUR NEIGHBOR Strictly speaking, the photons of light incident on glass are A. also the ones that travel through and exit the other side.

23 Atmospheric Window

25 Transparent and Opaque Reflection Materials Light shining on metal forces free electrons in the metal into vibrations that emit their own light as reflection.

26 Transparent and Opaque Light incident on: Materials dry surfaces bounces directly to your eye wet surfaces bounces inside the transparent wet region, absorbing energy with each bounce, and reaches your eye darker than from a dry surface

27 Color Color physiological experience in the eye of the beholder

28 Color Each color in a rainbow corresponds to a different wavelength of electromagnetic spectrum.

29 Color Color we see depends on frequency of light lowest frequency perceived as red in between lowest and highest frequency perceived as colors of the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) highest frequency perceived as violet beyond violet, invisible ultraviolet (UV)

30 Color Selective reflection We see the color of a rose by the light it reflects.

31 Color Objects reflect light of some frequencies and absorb the rest. rose petals absorb most of the light and reflect red objects that absorb light and reflect none appear black object can reflect only those frequencies present in the illuminating light

32 Color Color of transparent object depends on color of light it transmits. colored glass is warmed due to the energy of absorbed light illuminating the glass

33 Color Mixed colored lights Distribution of solar frequencies is uneven most intense in yellow-green portion (where our eyes are most sensitive)

34 Color Radiation curve divides into three regions that match the color receptors in our eyes.

35 Color Additive primary colors red, green, and blue produce any color in the spectrum

44 3-D glasses use Cyan and Red

45 Color Printing Computer monitors emit light, whereas inked paper absorbs or reflects light RGB works best for emitting colored light CMY works best for reflecting colored light

46 Color Printing

47 Color Printing Only three colors of ink (plus black) are used to print color photographs (a) magenta, (b) yellow, (c) cyan, which when combined produce the colors shown in (d). The addition of black (e) produces the finished result (f).

48 Why the Sky is Blue Why the sky is blue results of selective scattering of smaller particles than the wavelength of incident light and resonances at frequencies higher than scattered light the tinier the particle, the higher the frequency of light it will reemit

49 Why the Sky is Blue Why the sky is blue (continued) due to selective scattering blue scattered light predominates in our vision varies in different locations under various conditions clear dry day much deeper blue sky clear, humid day beautiful blue sky lots of dust particles and larger molecules than nitrogen and oxygen in the atmosphere less blue sky with whitish appearance after heavy rainstorm (washing away of airborne particles) deeper blue sky

55 Why Clouds are White Clouds clusters of various sizes of water droplets

56 Why Clouds are White Size of clusters determines scattered cloud color tiny clusters produce bluish clouds slightly large clusters produce greenish clouds larger clusters produce reddish clouds overall result is white clouds slightly larger clusters produce a deep grey still larger clusters produce raindrops

57 Diffraction Diffraction bending of waves by means other than reflection and refraction property of all kinds of waves seen around edges of many shadows

58 Diffraction Waves diffract after passing through a narrow opening. Plane waves passing through openings of various sizes. The smaller the opening, the greater the bending of the waves at the edges.

59 Diffraction Amount of diffraction depends on wavelength of the wave compared to the size of the obstruction that casts the shadow.

60 Diffraction Features of diffraction limitations with focusing images in optical instruments object about the same size as wavelength of light, diffraction blurs object smaller than wavelength of light, no image limitations avoided with an electron beam having extremely short wavelengths

61 Diffraction Features of diffraction (continued) electron microscopes use electric and magnetic fields to focus and magnify images better radio reception with long radio waves for dolphins, use of shorter wavelengths see finer detail ultrasound

62 Interference of Light Superposition of waves

63 Interference of Light Interference pattern caused by interference between a pair of waves

64 Interference of Light Interference pattern (continued) constructive interference produces bright region where waves reinforce each other (waves arriving in phase) destructive interference produces dark region where waves cancel each other (waves arriving a half wavelength out of phase)
